How about throw away the door!
This upstairs hall way usually has my flannelet design wall across this shallow closet. I did learn to store stuff I don't usually need in it as there is usually something pinned all over it.
Friday I was kinda frustrated and when I get that way I need to DO something. I tend to take things out on the vacuum and while I was working I was thinking. The clutter in the house is bothering me. I am also thinking about ways to get things finished. How can I do things better?
I can't say enough good things about blogging. It makes me commit and then it makes me figure out how to make those commitments happen. Mostly I trick myself. lol
I blog Monday to Friday as my weekends are pretty much taken up with family. To have Finishes for Friday I need to begin to plan on Monday. But I need to get busy on Monday, not plan things. So when I Finish on Friday I won't be finished until I have the plan for the following week. This also means I'll be blogging about what I've done not just what I'd like to do. So while I will bead on Monday it'll be the theme for Tuesday. Tuesday is the day I'll prep for WOW, Worktable On Wednesday! Then Wednesday I can be busy on house stuff and finishing the goal for the week which posts Friday. etcetera!
All that creative energy made me want to tear the hall door off. I decided the days of queen sized quilts is over and the design wall becomes the hanging place for UFOs which make me duck my head as I pass through this space. Be gone! The fashion fabric is not too fashionable any more so... Be gone. Stacks of books everywhere is becoming hazardous to the Rooster's toes! Be gone.
A quick fix, some improvement, still a bit too cluttered, but I feel better. I did pass the fashion fabrics quickly off to my daughter on Sunday as I was already starting to have second thoughts about my first good intentions.
So this week my goal is to get the last of my stitching patterns done. I've sliced up the last of my solid black fabric. This is not real exciting but I'm sure I'm going to refer to these over and over again and I'll be sew glad I persevered. I need to plan the beading class schedule, WOW what's on Wednesday's Worktable, declutter something else and find something to play with.
Some people sweep things under the rug. I shove them in a drawer or closet and slam the door. I think I'm going to open a few more doors and maybe even get rid of the door entirely. Open doors are definitely open opportunities.
